Travel to central London
From the Airport to the City Centre
All airports are well connected with the city centre and there are signposts guiding you around.
From Heathrow Airport
The fastest and easiest method of transport into the centre of London is the Underground. Unless you are returning to the airport on the same day, you should buy a single ticket to the station you are going to. They are sold either over the counter or by the ticket machines in the station hall.
From Gatwick Airport
Use this link for information on how to get from Gatwick Airport to the centre www.gatwick-airport-guide.co.uk/
From Stansted Airport
You can either go by train (called the Stansted Express) or by coach. Details can be found on the BAA Stansted website www.baa.com
If you decide to take the Stansted Express train, we strongly recommend that you buy your ticket before boarding the train. Tickets are always checked and they cost more if purchased after departure. Some budget airlines sell them on board the aircraft at reduced prices. They are excellent value for money, so buy them if you can! Return tickets are also much cheaper than two singles. Check out www.stanstedexpress.co.uk for further details.
For a cheaper option check out www.nationalexpress.com for the bus timetables. Cheaper bus companies are advertised in the arrival hall of the airport. So, look out for them when you get there. The bus takes 1.2 – 2 hours to reach the centre.
